Librivox recording of Fanny Herself by Edna Ferber.
Read by J. M. Smallheer.

Fanny Herself is the story of Fanny Brandeis, a young girl coming of age in the Midwest at the turn of the 20th century. It is generally considered to have been based on Ferber’s own experiences growing up in Appleton, Wisconsin. Regarded by many as the “greatest American woman novelist of her day,” Ferber would go on to win the Pulitzer Prize in a 1925 for her book So Big, and is also the author of Showboat and Cimarron, which along with other of her later works were successfully adapted for stage and screen. (summary by J. M. Smallheer)

Subject: Wonderful story, great American writer
Edna Ferber is one of THE American writers of the early 20th century. Her concise, almost journalistic prose is a breath of air after the wordy Victorians. Her stories, which move along at good pace, tend to be about small town people in the big city.

This one is a real pleasure for its smart but tender heroine Fanny Brandeis from Winnebago, Wisconsin. Too bad Ferber didn't write more about this character who didn't let the prejudices of the era stand in her way! I'll certainly be reading more from this great writer.

Thanks to the reader whose glottal stops (e.g., "moun-in" for mountain) make for interesting listening.
